Girl group Addictiv Ladies, who were the first act to be voted out of talent show 'X Factor' during the live performances, have hit out at judge Louis Walsh over his decision to boot them from the show.

Addictiv Ladies, who were one of Simon Cowell's final four acts, were forced to rely on the judges' votes after losing out on a public vote, along with fellow competitor Chico.

Louis Walsh voted the girl group out of the competition when given the casting vote, as Sharon Osbourne had opted to save her competitor Chico and Simon Cowell voted to keep his act Addictiv Ladies.

Speaking after being knocked out of the competition following their performance of Jamelia's hit 'Superstar', Fleur East said that the group confronted Walsh about his decision.

"We just told him that what he did was wrong. He didn't even know what to say and walked away looking sheepish," she claimed.

During the show Walsh said: "They were amateurish and needed more vocal coaching."

Afterwards another member of the group, Vivienne Umeh said: "He was just cruel and malicious picking on a young group of girls like us."

Stephanie Yamson, who also sings with Addictiv Ladies, vowed: "We will one day be a British Destiny's Child."
